Interesting feedback? I should say. How about an explanation for why this change was made or suggest a workaround/solution. I've scoured the web trying to find a hack that will let me separate the ringtones from notifications and can not find one that works how I need it to.
Everything would be fine if I used the default notification tone for all incoming messages in which case I could use one of the profile apps available. However I have a different tone for each email account, messaging, and calendar just like on previous Android devices. In ICS simply setting notifications to silent does not override the custom tones I've entered. It seems like it should be such a simple function to turn off all but the ringer and alarm during night time hours. I'm at a loss to understand why combining notifications and ringer volumes would be the default functionality when so many of us have our devices on or near us 24/7. Am I wrong?
